An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.

I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.

The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Jeanne Tremel.

Jeanne Tremel lives in Brooklyn, NY.

ARTIST STATEMENT

“Painting is a transformation in mind and medium. There is a point in the process of layering paint, where the intention turns, similar to when a lake ‘turns over’ in the fall and what was once on the bottom circulates to the top, the top layer freezing. The downright sexiness of oil paint, in particular, on a slick surface suggests a more interactive parallel. I set up a structure in which to, weave, layer, scrape and wrestle, turning over marks and colors. Paint is a resilient and lively medium, resulting in a halted abstraction of a certain time.: JT
